  1. Personally, (like most of the previous posts), I think you're good too.  I know the IVY's can be a bit choosy, but there are great regional schools that will give you money to attend.  Better to come out with low debt and a good education, than high debt and a good education.  When you're in the hunt for a job, network like crazy and get connected with people in places you want to work.  Making those connections early always helps.  Having been on job selection committee before, I find that people tend to like to hire people they know.

    Good luck to you!!

    Great idea, good luck with that! I'd like to add a nice guide which can be helpful: https://studypreplounge.com/college-prep/how-to-write-an-argumentative-essay/

    It's quite easier when you follow the guide step by step so that you know exactly what to focus on.

    Thanks Leonard - I should have been more specific.  I need to talk with people struggling with personal statements.  I can't figure out how to edit the post so it's clearer though. ..

  3. Y'all, are you feeling lost and overwhelmed about the thought of writing a grad school essay?  Are you just ready to start grad school but don’t know how to get past the hurdle of writing that dreaded essay, so you can apply?  Not sure where to begin or if you even have a story worth telling?

    If this sounds familiar, I’d love to chat with you for 20 minutes, so I can ask you some market research questions.  As a practicing attorney, I have published in academic and trade journals, and have helped individuals that were getting rejection letters craft personal statements, or statements of purpose that finally got them into grad school. 

    In return for your time, I will provide the following for FREE: short step by step guide to get the ideas out of your head and on paper; 3 key ways to craft your story so your “normal” life reads like the page of a best-selling novel; a read through and mark up of your first draft, so you can feel comfortable and confident submitting those applications. 

    DM me if you’re available and I'll set up a time so we can chat.  Thank you!

  4. I am a 2 time grad school attendee (different degrees).  I am deaf in one ear and was diagnosed with severe narcolepsy some years ago, in college.  I understand your feelings, because I felt the same way for YEARS.   I just had to start seeing that despite the disability, we managed to graduate from school and are trying to live as best a life as possible. 

    I have talked about that experience in my essays and how I overcome that to live my life.  Being disabled and still managing to go through everyday life is an accomplishment in itself.  I'm now a practicing tax lawyer and have changed how I feel about these disabilities.  Understanding my resilience has allowed these things not to stop me one bit!  Stay strong and know that you are living with your disability shows your strength.
